Today I needed a slight diversion from work. It was one of those days where I realized I was sitting there staring at the computer screen watching the progress bar slowly crawl across the screen. I’ve got five other applications open at the same time and was trying to do what little I could on each. It was not too long before I realized that I was staring at the screen for almost 10 minutes waiting for some application to respond so I could do just a little sliver of work.

Somewhere inside my mind something clicked and said, “Wouldn’t this be a good time for a twenty minute break, if I’m lucky I will have access to my computer by then?” I pulled up the geocaching.com website, found a cache less then 500 feet from my desk and set out.

It took longer than expected to find a tube about 2½” long by ½” diameter. When I went out I had no idea what shape or size I was looking for but it did not take long to deduce that it must be pretty small. Eventually, I figured out to pick up a partial brick, which was quite out of place. The brick had a small hole drilled to exactly the size of the bison tube.

I certainly love caches so well camouflaged because it gives me a mental workout, but on the other had I’m not sure why it takes so long to figure it out. It helped that the cache name was “A Rock of a Different Color.” You certainly can’t give too much more away without handing it to someone.
